Cork is the name given to the bark of the cork oak, a tree from the beech family, which is mainly grown in Mediterranean countries such as Portugal + Spain. The bark acts as protective shell to the harsh climate changes + as a support against numerous fires affecting the region. Cork trees are stripped of their bark every nine to fourteen years. It is important to know, that the tree itself is never cut + the habitat remains undisturbed. The properties of cork are derived naturally from the structure + chemical composition of the inner cells.
